 31:42
31:42 'If the God of my fathers - the God of Abraham and the Dread of Isaac - had not been with me, you would have sent me away empty handed! But God saw my plight and the work of my hands. Last night, He rendered judgment!'
Luley Elohey avi Elohey Avraham ufachad Yitschak hayah li ki atah reykam shilachtani et-oni ve'et-yegia kapay ra'ah Elohim vayochach amesh.



Commentary:

Dread
  See Genesis 31:53. Since Isaac was still alive, Jacob would not call Him 'God of Isaac.'

He rendered judgment
  (Ramban). Or, 'He reprimanded you last night' (Rashi).
